Arapahoe Community College has received a $20,000 grant from The Denver Foundation, as announced today by Courtney Loehfelm, Executive Director of the ACC Foundation.
The grant from The Denver Foundation is designated to be used for childcare stipends for low-income student parents who have children enrolled in the ACC Child Development Center.
"Arapahoe Community College is very thankful for this grant, and we extend our most sincere gratitude to The Denver Foundation and its Board of Trustees for their consideration and generosity," said Loehfelm. "As the enrollment at ACC continues to grow, so does the need for additional childcare. This grant will help keep childcare expenses at a minimum for our student parents as they focus on pursuing their education."
